Antique French 800 Silver Grape & Snake Estate Wine Tasting Cup

This gorgeous antique tastevin wine taster cup is made of 800 silver (by comparison, 925 is sterling silver). It has a beautiful repousse grapes and grape leaf design. Best of all, it has a charming handle of kissing snakes or serpents. The cup measures slightly over 3 3/4” including the handle - about 2 7/8” not including the handle and is about 15/16” high. The weight is about 42 grams. It is hallmarked with the Minerva mark used in France for 800 silver on the side of the cup. I also found a tiny diamond shaped maker’s mark on one of the snakes, but it isn’t clearly impressed and I can’t make it out. There is an initial or letter on the right side which looks like it might be an E or F, but I can’t say for sure. Maybe you recognize the mark? We would date this to the late 1800s Victorian era. Good antique condition with age appropriate wear. The silver has a nice warm patina (tarnish) that we have left untouched. Perfect for the wine connoisseur. Please feel free to email us with reasonable offers and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. You will treasure this!!!
